The Chion is a mixed dog breed, a cross between the Chihuahua and the Papillon. Chions may have any combination of traits from its parentage, but there are some things that you can be relatively sure about. Both the Chihuahua and the Papillon are charming dogs that are active yet affectionate. They are also quite intelligent. When selecting a Chion, look for eye, gum and joint problems.
Common Name(s) Chion, Papihuahua, Chi-a-Pap, Pap-Chi
Breed Type The Chion is a mixed breed. A cross between the Chihuahua and the Papillon, this is a lively and loveable hybrid.
Background The Chion is a somewhat rare hybrid, and there is little reliable information about its origins. Most Chions are the result of first generation crossbreeding.
Description Chions are small dogs, usually with long or medium length coats. They come in a variety of colors and have large, erect ears. Height and weight vary, but are less than 11 inches and 10 pound, respectively.
Care and Feeding Both Chihuahuas and Papillons thrive on a diet that includes poultry, so it's safe to assume that Chions will do well on such a diet as well. Gentle brushing is the most important step in maintaining a Chion's coat. Nails should be trimmed regularly, and baths given as needed. Chions need regular checkups to stay healthy. Vaccinations are due as follows:
Chions are average shedders. Regular vacuuming of the carpet and furniture is essential.
Housing Your Dog Chions are indoor dogs. Some bark excessively, so they may not be the best choice if you live in an apartment.
Social Behaviors Chions are too small and delicate to be handled by young or rambunctious children. They may not like strangers, and they tend to be aggressive toward other dogs. But with proper socialization, they may get along with other pets.
Handling and Training Chions may be easy to train, or they may be rather headstrong. They are usually very smart, though, and can learn lots of things from a firm and patient trainer.
Activities Chions are active, and they need daily walks and play sessions to stay healthy. They enjoy playing off-leash outdoors when weather permits.
Breeding/Reproduction Chions are often bred back to Chihuahuas or Papillons. When selecting a mate for your Chion, check for gum and joint problems.
Common Health Problems Chions may have a fontanel, or soft spot in the skull. Care must be taken to protect this sensitive area from injury. This breed may also be prone to colds.
Availability Chions can be difficult to find in many areas. Prices vary.
kya - 2015-03-06 I just bought a chion and he is so adorable, I'm not fully sure on how to train him at all he is 8 months, he doesn't like the dark or hus crate...the only time he barks is in the crate or darkness... He is great with my 8 month old daughter... I'm in love with him so i named.him Romeo... If any one can give me advice please do ☺
Clarice Brough - 2015-03-11 It sounds like he isn't getting positive reinforcement when he has to deal with the dark or the crate. There is lots of good information on how to crate train a puppy, but it takes a regular effort in short spurts and with lots of good reinforcement: i.e treats, praise, and staying near for a bit each time.
Vicki Walsh - 2015-02-16 We have had our little Chion, Dottie, for two years now. She is great with our other seven year old yellow lab. She is also very playful and loving with our two kids. She does bark a lot especially at other animals, including ones on the television. I would recommend this breed, she has made a nice addition to our family.
Clarice Brough - 2015-02-16 Dottie is adorable! Thanks for sharing your picture!
carmen - 2012-11-11 Could someone, anyone, pleeease tell me where i can get a chion?! The breed would be perfect for me. I am located in philadelphia. Willing to travel to new york, new jersey, delaware and upstate pennsylvania. Looking to purchase or adopt a puppy preferably female. Thank you!
Charlie Roche - 2012-11-12 When you are starting from scratch - quickest way is to Goggle Chion Breeders. You will come up with many - all over the US but possibly one close to you.
Gail - 2014-09-19 Check out the rescue leagues. I got my Wally at one in Florida, Grateful Paws,. He is 16 months old and a bundle of fun! He does bark a lot though! Good luck...
